A NEW multi-country consortium of Europe’s most trusted identity experts announced on Wednesday, September 14 its proposal to deliver a large-scale, cross-border payments pilot strongly aligned with the aims of the European Commission’s EU digital identity wallet program.
Led by NOBID (Nordic-Baltic eID Project), the six countries part of the consortium linked with the European Commission’s EU digital identity wallet program are; Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia and Norway.
The consortium’s proposal will bring to life the most widely used of the European Union’s priority use cases for wallet – payments.
